|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||50%|
|SIDE EFFECT (1)||50%|
[SIDE EFFECTS] I am now 34 and have been diagnosed with a seizure disorder. I was diagnosed in 2008. The EEG reported minor bilateral sharp activity. I was then prescribed 200mg Tegretol CR twice per day. Up until 2011, I suspected that seizure activity might be happening and I had another EEG done, I do not have the terminology of the my latest report but it was very similar to the first one so the meds was increased to 300mg Tegretol CR twice per day. It is my intention to be off this drug b/c of my reactions to it. I am generally tired and sleepy and I have noticed some memory and concentration problems. Also, I have weight gained and menstrual problems. Any suggestions for my conditions. I intend to have babies and I would like something that is safe for me both pre, during and post pregnancy. I live in the Caribbean. Any suggestions??
